This is a handy air purifier to have if odors or smoke are problems for you. It features an activated carbon filter that traps odors and keeps them from spreading. It also has a couple washable pre-filters so you won’t have to spend a ton of money replacing them all the time. On the lowest operating speed, this device produces just 31 decibels of sound.

The filters in the BlueAir classic are electrostatically charged so they are very effective at drawing contaminants in and trapping them.

If you live in a humid area where fungus and mildew are a problem, this air purifier can really help. It effectively kills mold spores and can replace humid air with clean, purified air in rooms up to 600 square feet. It comes with a handy leather carrying strap and a unique PECO filter as well as a couple of pre-filters for larger contaminants.
- Easy to move from room to room
- You can have replacement filters delivered to your door
- The PECO filter only needs to be changed every 6 months
Although this smaller version of the Molekule air purifier is rated to exchange air in rooms 250 square feet, it still is effective for killing mold, bacteria, viruses and volatile organic compounds at the molecular level. It does not produce any ozone like some air purifiers with ionizers do and it takes in air from all directions.
- Doesn’t take up much space
- Proprietary PECO filtration technology
- Comes with a pre-filter
Blueair vs. Molekule Company Comparison
Blueair products are sold in 60 countries around the world. They are a Swedish company that is part of the Unilever group of brands. They are a company that takes a lot of pride in the sleek design of their products. After using their air purifiers for a few months, we noticed an improvement in overall air quality. It is apparent that they have gone to great lengths to ensure both high quality design and air filtration in their products.
Molekule was launched in 2014 after decades of work and research went into developing their proprietary photo electrochemical oxidation technology. They are a relatively young company but it is clear that they are one dedicated to innovation and changing the quality of indoor air for the better.
After reviewing products from both of these companies, we must say that we were impressed with both. While Molekule is changing the way indoor air is treated, Blueair is marrying sophisticated design and powerful air filtration.
It was also nice that we could connect the Blueair to Alexa and control it by voice. We think both of these companies deserve your attention – especially if you are looking for an alternative to the industry titans like Honeywell and Levoit.
If you are interested in ease of use and convenience, then check out the BlueAir family of air purifiers. If HEPA filter air purifiers haven’t helped you in the past, then you should definitely check out any of the Molekule air purifiers.
